Weihnachten und Sylvester 17/18

Liebe Aikidoka, das Dojo bleibt vom 24.12.17 bis zum 7.1.18 geschlossen. An Sylvester, 31.12., findet ein Jahresabschluss-Training von 15.00 – 16.30 Uhr statt. Im neuen Jahr, am Donnerstag dem 4.1., gibt es Training laut regulärem Stundenplan für Marianne und Alfons und jeden, der auch noch Bewegungsdrang verspürt. Am Montag, dem 8. Januar, wird Fram für uns im Dojo kochen. Daher machen alle zusammen Training von 19.00 – 20.30 Uhr. Für Kinder und Jugendliche startet das Training nach den Weihnachtsferien. Ich wünschen Euch allen frohe Weihnachten und einen Guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr 2018. Viele Grüße Jörg
